  La Trappe (NL)

The Trappist beer “La Trappe” is brewed in Koningshoeven Abbey in Tilburg (NL).

"Blonde" is a clear, sparkling, light beer, easy to drink, with a high fermentation suited to European taste.  The use of refined hops gives this beer its characteristic soft, bitter aftertaste and cool, fragrant aroma.  “Blonde” is 6.5% ABV and is available in 30 cl. and 75 cl. bottles as well as 30-liter kegs.

La Trappe’s "Dubbel" is a dark, ruby-red Trappist with a soft, fragrant, and especially fresh character.  “Dubbel” is 6.5% ABV and is available in 30 cl. and 75 cl. bottles as well as 30-liter kegs.

La Trappe’s "Tripel" is a darker yellow Trappist with a fruity, bittersweet taste, 8% ABV, available in 30 cl. and 75 cl. bottles as well as 30-liter kegs. 

"Quadrupel" with its 10% ABV is La Trappe’s heaviest specialty.  The taste is full-bodied, mild, and pleasantly bitter.  “Quadrupel” is bottled according to the brewing year and is a pleasant companion for long winter evenings.   It’s available in 30 cl. and 75 cl. bottles as well as 30-liter kegs.

Since 2004, Koningshoeven has also been brewing "Bock Beer", a real autumn beer.  It’s a Trappist bock beer, multi-grain, brewed in the classical way, with a top-fermenting character.  This specialty is 7.3% ABV.  The aroma is that of malt with a bit of a “green scent” from the aromatic hops in the background.  It’s deep red in color with the full-bodied taste of the hops that are used.  The carmelized malt and hops give this beer a slightly bitter aftertaste.  “Bock Beer” is available in season in 30 cl. bottles.

“White Trappist” is brewed with especially aromatic hops, giving it a cool character, appropriate for summer weather.  “White Trappist” is neither filtered nor pasteurized and the fermentation process continues in the bottle.  It is 5.5% ABV and is available in 30 cl. and 75 cl. bottles as well as 30-liter kegs.  “White Trappist” should preferably be enjoyed cooled to 4º - 6º C.

In 2009, for the occasion of the 125th anniversary of their brewery, Our Lady of Koningshoeven Abbey developed “La Trappe Isid’or,” a jubilee beer.  Due to the great success which this beer enjoyed, it will be granted a place in the regular line of La Trappe beers from now on.'La Trappe Isid’or' is a lightly sweet amber beer with a hint of caramel. The beer tastes softly bitter and has a fruity aftertaste. La Trappe Isid’or is brewed with the self-cultivated Perle hop. 7,5% alcohol, pouring temperature 10-14 ºC.

'Puur’ (4.7% alcohol) is the first biological Trappist.  A light, drinkable, fresh, hoppy beer.  High quality biological ingredients are used exclusively in brewing this beer.

The various beers can all be enjoyed on the grounds of the monastery and are available for sale in the Monastery Store.
